Gala Bingo Overview

Gala Bingo was relaunched in the summer of 2012 and has since gone on to even greater heights. Incorporating the best of Virtue Fusion's sofware, it contains all the elements you'd want from a top bingo site. Gala Bingo also have a great mobile product on both Apple and Android phones.

Site Design

The new design keeps its classic Gala blue and yellow feel, but that's about all as the overall feel is a huge step in the right direction and a pleasure to interact with. Signing up is straightforward and easy, and the games lobby is intuitive to navigate around. It was a big decision when Gala moved over to the Virtue Fusion platform, but it has paid off.


Upon joining you can expect one of the best new player offers around, just spend £10 to play with £40. You will also get 7-days access to their Newbie Room where each game has £25 in prize money and you play for free.

The Newbie Room will be immediate upon registration. In addition, players will receive access for 7 full days (including the day they register).

Gala Bingo's loyalty points, or Buzz Bonus Points are earned with every game, not just every deposit. And with over 634,000 bingo winners in May alone they appear to have built a very loyal following!

Games and Jackpots

Bingo players will be spoilt for choice with 22 bingo rooms. These include traditional 75, 80 and 90 ball games as well as a brand new, quick-fire 50 ball game.

Gala Bingo's popular bingo rooms include the uniquely licensed television tie-ins which you just can't find at any other bingo sites. There's the team action of Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Take Takeaway Bingo or you can make a play for Coronation Street's 'Golden Cobbles' progressive jackpot which just paid out an impressive £16,846.02 over one month. In fact, Gala Bingo players cashed in 166 jackpot wins across all games in May.

Allowing players to play anywhere and everywhere is a real priority for Gala Bingo. You can easily download their App store app or just use their fully optimised mobile website for all tablets and smartphones running up-to-date versions or iOS or Android - very helpful.


Whether it's in their bingo halls or online, Gala Bingo pride themselves on being a friendly and helpful organisation. The CMs at Gala Bingo live up to that high standard and there are enough people in the rooms to always get a good conversation going. If you have any questions there is also a detailed Help section and the Gala Live section really makes you feel like you are there playing bingo in person. With Gala you always feel like you're part of a bigger community, online and offline, and that ranks as high in our books as winning at bingo.

Sammy's Verdict

Gala's catchprase is -You'll love the buzz" and after playing for hours on Gala Bingo I heartily agree! Gala have done a fantastic job of taking the best of the Virtue Fusion platform and combining it with their own tried-and-tested offering to make for a fantastic bingo experience. If you previously gave up on the old, clunky Gala website, I definitely recommend you give them another go. Gala Bingo is now the best bingo website around in my opinion.
